Unveiling the world’s first ‘Hipercar’


That isn’t a typo. It’s literally called a HIPERCAR, because that’s an acronym for HIgh-PERformance CArbon Reduction! Designed by Ariel Motor, and unveiled only a handful of hours back, this beast currently under wraps with a release date of 2019, but the guys at Ariel decided to give us a look at what they’re up to, and even with just two renders, I’ll say, I’m floored.

Built with an aluminum chassis and an edgy, drool-worthy, split-surface aesthetic that embodies absolute rage and dominance (made in carbon fiber, we suspect), the car will be powered by an electric drivetrain augmented by a microturbine range extender, and will come in two-wheel and four-wheel drive variants… the latter having a 1,180 bhp output, which will help propel the car from 0 to 62 mph in a staggering 2.4 seconds, with a top speed of 160 mph.

Everything about this car however is tentative, including the name (which we love, honestly), and only time will tell what this car will look and feel like, and be called, when it debuts at the end of this decade. However, it’s our job to keep you informed, to stay tuned!
